Our History

The Military Retiree’s Club of Richmond filed received its certificate of incorporation from the Commonwealth of Virginia in June 1972. In 1975 we were recognized as a non-profit, war veteran, tax exempt, corporation for civic, humanitarian, and patriotic purposes. The first president of the corporation was the late Chief Warrant Officer George U. Green.


The heartbeat of our organization is the individual member. We share our expertise, our thoughts, and ideas to make our community and our Club better. Each member is encouraged to get involved, identify an area of interest, and become an active participant.

Community Give Back

We invest by organizing volunteer groups and supporting nonprofit organizations that do so much to help the community that all of us are a part of. We give what we can regularly to the charities that make a difference to our local and national community.

The Military Retirees Club, Inc. (MRC) of Richmond, Virginia is a Non-Profit Tax­ Exempt War Veteran Organization. Our organization was the dream and vision of the late Co-founders, Leon Ellis and Joseph Stewart, both Army Retirees. They recognized the need to maintain a sense of comradery among military retirees and the opportunity to strengthen bonds and relations within the community at large.
